    How does Disney select the families to do special things such as: open the park for MK by riding in on the train in the pre-show for the park opening?

    Hi Jamie,

    I have never been chosen but some friends of mine just visited Disney World for the first time last month and they were selected.  It was AMAZING for them and I am thrilled that they were selected.  Now they understand why I LOVE going to Disney World.

    Each morning a family is randomly selected.  I would suggest being there early.  It won't guarantee anything but may give you a better chance of catching the eye of the right Cast Member and being selected with fewer people around you.

    I think that being chosen as the family to help open the Magic Kingdom would be one of those special memories that would last a lifetime.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!  Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
